In the current market place, as businesses start to investigate how to find new ways of attracting clients, it is becoming more important that they are able to communicate in a variety of ways, including online - through websites and social media avenues. In this new market place it is clear that many clients, when looking for services and products, initially logn and search the web to find those services. Irrespective of the size of your practice, it may be advantageous that you have a presence online in the social media networks and that your potential clients are easily able to find you there.


This seminar will provide:
- An overview of the benefits of developing an online and social
media presence that allows you to engage in these new business
networks;
- A practical 'How To' guide to joining social media networks, which websites and networks to join, the advantages and disadvantages of each website and how to use them;
- An overview of the Law Society of England and Wales Practice Direction on Social Media.

 

The seminar will be delivered by the Society's Communications Officer, Paul O'Connor and Tim McKane the Chief Executive of Navajo Social
Media.
